    Does anyone have any plans, I’m willing to pay, for a assembly table/workbench that would incorporate my mobile base Ridgid 4512? I’m looking for ideas on how to optimize my limited shop space. I have seen plenty of designs for worksite/table top saws but none for the saw I have. It would be...

    Hey there, I currently have 4 flimsy metal framed 48x24 benches. I’m planning on building replacements for each of them, preferably out of regular construction lumber. I’d like to do a range of joinery techniques across them Since I’m still a noob on most of them. My first post was on what...

    Hey everyone, I'm new to the forum and relatively new to woodworking, but I'm trying to get better and also trying to upgrade equipment so I can have a little more faith in the tools I use. I'll try to keep this brief, but I'm sure I'll ramble. I have had a Ryobi table saw for several...

    Having recently bought the wood to create a workbench some questions cropped up regarding the base. The workbench itself will be 24 inches wide (if everything goes according to plan!) and about 7 feet long. The legs and frame will be done with Mortise and Tenon joints using 4x4 lumber. How...

    Hello, I am going to build a workbench. It will have holes for hold fasts and dogs. The bench will be between 7 and 7-1/2 feet long and 30 inches wide. I was wondering to use either 2x4 or 4x4. Either of these ones would be planed and glued together. Finally, was thinking of doing one of the...

    Hi Everyone! I'm new to this site and overall fairly new to woodworking. I'm designing my first decent workbench and I was hoping to get some feedback from people more experienced than myself. I've attached the Sketchup file for anyone who would like to view it that way and some screenshots as...

    My "Workspace" is an old 1930/40 outbuilding that i believe was used as a carriage house, however, they had the space 14x18 paved with a drain angle, looks like a 5-10 degree from the front all the way to the back, I have a Delta contractor saw and I want to build a workbench/extension table...

    I'm in an older house (1890's) and in the cellar is a large well built 6' bench. There's a newer 9' bench along the adjacent wall about 3' from the other and sadly 3/4" shorter than the other. At some point someone added a bridge between the two to make one giant bench, but there is that 3/4"...

    Just wanting to get others opinions on putting a good coat of polyurethane on the surface of my table I made. I used 3/4 sanded plywood for the top and was wanting to protect it. However, I don't want it to be so slick that its hard to use the far end as a small assembly area. Should I poly...

    Hello friends, I wanted to show you my last job. I built a mini carpenter workbench. maybe for many it is nothing special but for me that I work in the garage and I have little space it allows me to do carpentry work with more precision but important to be able to use the plane. You can rest it...
  11. Design & Plans
    Hello I am currently in the process of designing a workbench. My main feature would be that one side of the workbench has some soldering/electric/cutting mats stuck on it for my most common requirements, and the other side of the top is left perfectly flat wood for when i need it for general...

    Here's my construction lumber workbench built from Paul Sellers design in his book "Working Wood 1 & 2". A great book that I reviewed on my website. Next to the bench is my first project using it, another design from Paul's book, a chairside table made of hickory. This was actually the second...

    Hi, I am building a work bench the calls for 3 1/2 inch x 3 1/2 laminated aprons. Article suggests pocket screws to attach aprons to the table top and i want to do this vs battens. I have a Kreg jig, but max stock depth it accommodates is 1 1/2. If i drill a 1 1/2in pocket hole on 3 1/2 stock...

    So i've been inspired recently to build a workbench because my garage looks absolutely woeful, stuff piled on top of stuff. I also needed some new power tools to increase my man points. Since this project i've created enough sawdust to earn at least 3 i think. Album here - please bear in mind...

    I'm fairly new to wood working and I'm looking to build a mobile workbench. The mobility is purely to move it into a smaller place in my garage for storage. I've researched and looked at other designs but I wanted to share what I'm planning to build and get others feedback. One end will be my...
